  • 5 Tracey Ball 7th Oct 2018

    We used Andrew Bingham Independent Funeral Service for our Dad recently. From the moment we contacted Andrew (who was highly recommended)we have as a family nothing but praise at the services he provided. Both Andrew his wife & staff were simply amazing. The personal touches he gave us unexpectedly meant the world to us finding they had engraved an old tractor on his funeral plaque. On viewing Dad they had left the bible on the psalm we had chosen for the funeral. Nothing was too much trouble. As a result we are doing funeral plans ourselves safe in knowledge our wishes will be carried out to the highest quality.  Sincerely yours Tracey & Charles Ball.

    Andrew Bingham replied
    Dear Tracey Thank you very much for your lovely words, it is very much appreciated regards Andrew and Team

    Andrew was very respectful in our meetings and took all the hard work out of the decision making. He gave my Dad a proper funeral, even walking in front of the coffin as we left the house. Andrew also collected all the flowers and left them on my front lawn. I highly recommend his funeral services.

  • 5 David Dyble 9th Jul 2018

    Andrew and his wife Heidi were absolutely brilliant from the minute we engaged them to organise our Mum's funeral arrangements. Everything was handled sensitively but efficiently. On the day of the funeral everything went to plan, the casket and flowers looked superb and I know our Mum would have loved them. They also found us a fantastic Celebrant, June, who we also highly recommend. It all made matters much so much easier at such a difficult time. We are so glad we went with an independent local funeral directors.

    I cannot praise Andrew and his team more. He was so helpful and kind at this difficult time. They are professional from planning all the details to the actual day. Having Andrew organise everything has been a huge comfort and made a very difficult task so much easier. We feel so lucky to have found them by chance on google as we didn’t know where to start. Thank you Andrew and all the team we cannot recommend you enough. The Scotts

  • 5 Christine Green 2nd Apr 2018

    Excellent from start to finish, we’ve dealt with Andrew before and would definitely use again.  Made the whole experience so easy and you always knew they were there for you and the rest of the family.   Celebrant Bridget Garrett was excellent too. So many comments from people about what a beautiful service she gave.  At the end of the day, you couldn’t ask for more.  Thank you for making such a difficult experience a pleasure.

Frequently Asked Questions

How do you arrange a funeral?

You can arrange a funeral by choosing a funeral director who will help you organise all of the details. They can help you decide whether to have a cremation or burial and what type of service to choose, as well as additional options, such as music and flowers. You can find out what happens at a funeral and compare funeral directors on Funeral Guide.

What are disbursements?

Disbursements are additional costs for a funeral service that are paid to third-parties, such as florists, celebrants and burial fees. The funeral director will usually charge you for them and then pay the suppliers themselves.

How can I get help with funeral costs?

If the cost of a funeral is not covered by a prepaid funeral plan, or the estate of the person who has died, you may be able to get financial help from the government’s Bereavement Support Payment or from War Disablement Pensions, charitable funds or budgeting loans.
